Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures of my family ancestors graves as I work through my family tree. I was touched when I submitted some requests for grave pictures that were too far for me to drive. In less than two days the pictures were claimed, taken, and posted. That inspired me to pay it forward and try to do the same for others in my area.

My favorite is to go to the old cemeteries that have long been forgotten and need to be documented and pictures taken to preserve the headstone and its information for years to come. Many such cemeteries are simply washing out, growing over, etc and I feel compelled to help preserve what I can for others who may look for that information in the future.

Rachel Mattingly Find A Grave #45008180
Thanks! I copied Rachel's tombstone photo and added it to her memorial (Find A Grave #41775489), and added a caption to the photo giving credit. ladyN70 has already deleted Rachel's duplicate memorial (Find A Grave #45008180)

Rachel Mattingly FAG #45008180
Rachel Mattingly Find A Grave #45008180 is a duplicate memorial of Rachael Elizabeth Smith Mattingly Find A Grave #41775489. Could you post your photo of Rachel Mattingly's tombstone to Find A Grave Memorial #41775489, or if you would like, I could copy it and post it for you, and mention your name as credit for the photo in the caption area. I would like to do this before ladyN70 removes the duplicate. The Find A Grave Memorial #41775489 is more complete, with family links, etc. Thanks in advance for your assistance on this.

Presently I'm working on a USCT Headstone Page & would like to include any photos you may have. As a fellow Find A Graver I'll make sure you're given FULL credit & a link back to Find A Grave. Here's the link to our Page:

New Pic at Rose Hill Cem. - New pic added with full dates for both names since both are now deceased. Please note that it's best to not post entire stone with names of living - front & back. Some won't take any pics of a stone with name of living but I will take a pic & crop out names of living on front & not take pics of back of stones unless it has a military marker or notice an epitaph. You can keep the pic of both names on stone but suggest deleting the one of the back (has reflection of legs also). Thanks.

Picture for Mem Pg
Could you add your pic from this mem pg to a duplicate mem pg 31081584 so someone doesn't ask for a photo request. I've sent a req for creator of the duplicate pg to delete it. I'm sure i've asked before. If it doesn't get done this time i'll send req to F.A.G. "Craig" may be inactive?

You have posted photo of headstone on a duplicate
memorial #45005145 created Dec 1, 2009.
The earlier memorial #34353713 was created on
Mar 2, 2009.
I can how it happen with the later memorial not
having her full name...but would you please correct your posting to the earlier memorial.
I am going to request the duplicate memorial be deleted.

Picture for Mem Pg
44895648 Request to add your pic from this mem pg to the duplicate mem pg (fyi: not created by you). Since there's no response lately from DH for edit requests for her mem pgs, I'm not going to submit a request to delete this duplicate mem pg (has full b & d dates and her pg doesn't) & instead ask that the pic from the first pg be added to the 2nd pg. Thanks
